Pacific Northwest Energy Venture Blog

Ted Bernhard, a corporate and securities attorney at Stoel Rives, LLP has developed a Pacific Northwest Energy Venture Blog. I encourage you to visit it!

A side note: Ted & I sync up when it comes to addressing our energy independence: By enabling the free-market system (through the profit-motive) to solve our problems. This will create higher-paying jobs, with longer-term societal benefits! BTW: Ted is also the founder of Stoel Rives' Energy Venture Group (focused on innovations and finance in the energy marketplace)!

Stagflation starting?

As I predicted in 2005, stagflation* may be raising it's ugly head! If nothing is done to develop competing (renewable) energy sources, this could make the economic turmoil of the 1970s look mild.

* Do a quick web searh on the term - first coined in mid-197os, caused by... dramatic oil price increases. This time (with peak oil), it could be a lot worse.
